US Mid-Term Elections: A Personal Reflection

I am afraid that last night was nothing like as good as it should have been, especially the Senate result, which means Trump can now easily put judicial and Supreme Court appointments through and rig the courts. 

But for me the real disappointment continues to be the Democratic Party, that still has not really grasped how Trump operates, still has not found the anti-dote to demolish him, and his lies; and above all still has not found an economics strategy to unite the country against the Plutocracy. Dems are still split left/right, establishment/insurgency rather than bonded around a new vision for the country way better than Trump BS and lies. They have no real counter narrative and the result showed that: Trump disliked, Dems not that liked in contrast.

Last night to me showed that without a change in strategic direction and a far more formidable candidate than I see on offer, Trump is headed for re-election in 2020. But hey I am Cassandra hoping my prophecies will head off disaster….. 

And as per Joe Hill: don’t waste time mourning, analyze, learn the lessons, strategize and organize!
